How To Do Magic
Because of the very nature of magic, each working should be highly individualized and personal. Even if following a traditional spell, it should be tailored to your specific needsto be most effective for you.Understanding the basics of spell construction will enable you to formulate your ownspecific, effective spells for any purpose you desire. Preliminary planning is necessary.The very first step is to decide precisely what your desired end result is to be. Before youcan start, you must decide where you are going. You must be very explicit. It isimportant, also, that you choose your time carefully. You should take into considerationall astrological implications, energy currents and moon phases. The moon is theastronomical body closest to us and, therefore, has a profound influence upon us, it isvery important to choose a time when the moon is in an astrological sign which isappropriate for your working.For example:Aries ------- action --------- enthusiasmTaurus ------ renewal -------- sensualityGemini ------ communication -- curiosityCancer ------ emotion -------- nurturingLeo --------- vitality ------- determinedVirgo ------- organizing ----- studiousLibra ------- balance -------- cooperationScorpio ----- sexual --------- philosophicalSagitarius -- strength ------- humour Capricorn --- authority ------ ambitiousAquarius ---- innovation ----- socialPisces ------ sensitivity ---- idealistic.Bear in mind that magical workings for gain, increase or bringing things to you, should be initiated when the moon is waxing (from dark to full); when the moon is waning (fromfull to dark), it is time for magical workings of decrease or sending away. The highestenergy occurs at the full moon and, therefore, this is the most powerful time for magicalworkings. The new moon is the next most powerful time for magic.Whenever possible, follow nature's natural energy currents. There is a natural time for starting things (a planting time), for maturing things (a growing time), for reaping things(a harvest time) and, of course, a time for rest and planning. Flowing with these currentswill make your magical work much easier.Remember to plan your project for a time of uninterrupted privacy. It is important thatyou have no distractions. Generally speaking, it is best to work as late at night as possible. A time when there is less frantic energy is most appropriate. You might consider midnight or later. In choosing a place to do your magical working pay particular attentionto your needs, for you must be comfortable. Your place should be private, quiet and
 
secure.If at all possible, set aside a special place for this purpose only. An unused room, aspecial corner of your bedroom, a quiet, secluded spot in your garden. A place that isyours. A place that you can come to whenever need arises and that is as free fromintrusion of others as possible.Prior to the night of your magical working, gather together the things that you will need.All of the things used are tools. They have no inherent magic. They are to help you createa mood. If correctly made and used, they will trigger primitive responses from deepwithin you. They should be chosen with care. Consider the purpose of your ritual andchoose your tools accordingly. If your magic is to be sexual, your candles, oils, incensesand so forth, should bring forth a sexual response.If the desired result of your magic is tranquillity, then the tools should make you feelcalm, peaceful and serene. Any candles you might use should not have commerciallyadded fragrances as these may not be appropriate for your working.Prior to your ritual, prepare yourself and your equipment by any means necessary toclean and purify. Historically, people have fasted, followed meticulous and detailed bathing practices, practiced chastity and used many other methods. Most often a ritual bath is the preferred method. A bath frequently utilizing candlelight, fragrant herbs, bathsalts or sensuous oils. A sumptuous hot bath, special bathing preparations and appropriatelighting, combined, can create the soothing effect which will help in the very importantstep of relaxing and clearing the mind completely of all mundane thoughts andexperiences of the day.Your ritual bath should, also, begin to set the specific vibrations conducive to your  purpose into motion. You must not only cleanse and purify but must, also, begin to createthe type of energy necessary. Once your purification process has been accomplished, youare now ready to begin.Proceed to the special place you have previously chosen in which to perform your magic.If at all possible, you should make use of the primitive responses set into motion by awell chosen piece of music. Your music should start slowly and build to a rousing climax.As you use your oils, light your candle or incense (or utilize any other tool you havechosen), you should begin to further intensify the energy that you have set into motionaround you. A high degree of intensity is vitally important.The altered state of consciousness that you must reach is not a meditative state. Anythingthat interferes with your ability to concentrate upon, reach and control the high energystate necessary to perform magic should be avoided. Such as, screaming children, a sink full of dirty dishes, use of alcohol or drugs, etc.Do not scatter your energy by attempting to do more than one magickal working at atime. Remember that magic is the manipulation of energy, a thought is a form of energyand a visualization is an even stronger form of energy.
